I was reading the PDF instructions and having trouble understanding what they are doing with the side closure on the chiffon dress. It talks about adding facings but then no mention of what to do afterwards. I’m assuming they use snaps to close it? It just seems like it is missing a paragraph or at least a couple sentences.

    I haven’t made this dress but reading the instructions in the magazine I would guess that the slit is so you can access the petersham ribbon to fasten it when you are wearing the dress. The ribbon has a hook and eye on it which would hold the dress tight to your waist and the slit probably wouldn’t show in the skirt because it is flowing pleated material. Hopefully someone who has made the dress can help a bit more.
